Bill Colonello recently had success at an OEM of Steel Mill Equipment. specifying Paker, Bucher, Auburn, and CharLynn on an application for a battery powered portable lifting system, called a Tuyere cart. Our customer builds them for use in a steel mill to lift and set pipes near the furnace.
Bill worked with their engineers to select hydraulic components to power the tram, steer, lift, shift & tilt functions. The cart is rated to lift 10K lbs. The operator can walk behind or use tethered pendant for operation. This is one of few applications where Bill has used a Parker P5B tandem aluminum gear pump. This application also uses a customized Bucher HDS11 valve, in conjunction with Auburn Gearboxes and CharLynn T series brake motors.
